Slots Magic : Casino Review
Those who have been in the gambling industry for some time, may not recognise the name Slots Magic Casino as one of the stalwarts that held the SA gambling industry together. It may help to know though, that Slots Magic was formerly known as Jackpot Party.
Rebranded back in 2014, the site is one of the biggest that serves South African players. It has a central focus on slots, but still caters to everyone else looking for a bit of fun online. It also offers progressive slots and live casino play.
The site doesn't cater to South African players specifically but it doesn't actively discourage people from SA. You can play in ZAR and you'll be able to deposit and withdraw in Rands. The site has an easy way about it when it comes to navigation and is very accessible and has everything you could ask for, all on the front page.
With Slots Magic, you'll be able to get your 100% bonus offer up to a certain amount, and with it, be given 50 free spins. The spins that you'll be able to get are for the Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead slot.

You won't be able to get a no deposit bonus code with Slots Magic but if you're looking for free promotions, you'll be able to join free rolls on the Casino Tournaments page.
From the very outset upon visiting the Slots Magic casino mobile lobby, you'll be impressed by how well the site scales and how responsive it is on a multitude of phones. You won't be able to get any exclusive apps for iPhone or Android phones, but you can login and get playing immediately, in the same way you would on a desktop PC or laptop.
You'll be limited to less slots and games on mobile but don't pay any attention to that because you'll only be limited to just under 100 different slots titles. For table games, you'll be limited to a selection, but you'll still be able to play all your favourites.
The trick to Slots Magic is that the slots on offer are far more varied whether you're playing on mobile or desktop, you'll have a wider selection available to you from the very beginning.
Don't feel discouraged that Slots Magic doesn't have a specific mobile app for the phone that you have. It's not a very common thing. What's important is that the site in question has a great site that works responsively, and when playing, nothing gets cut off on the screen or anything is strangely different.
Our team of reviewers have tried and tested many of the different aspects of Slots Magic across the board, different games, slots and even received customer support using different mobiles and tablets. You're in safe hands.
It may come as a surprise that the rest of the world has very different views on what is important when playing on a mobile vs. playing on a desktop. This is true for many different reasons but one of the nice thing about Slots Magic is that it doesn't matter what bandwidth you're using.
If you've been with a company like Vodacom, MTN or Cell C for quite some time, you should know by now that bandwidth and data are two things that you hold dear to your heart. So does Slots Magic!
You'll get the exact same experience on your mobile no matter what network you're with, or whether you're connected to the WiFi at home.
Slots Magic has a partnership with SkillOnNet who distributes many different casino game providers across the world. This is the reason that you're able to get such a fantastic selection at Slots Magic.
One of the first things our review team noticed about the selection is that you can actually sort by provider. When you have as many providers as Slots Magic does, it's a great thing to have. Not only that, but you can sort by individual popular table games. If you're looking for a different variation of blackjack, then head on in and play one of the many varieties on offer.
Some of the more popular providers include Williams Interactive, Yggdrasil, Bally, Big Time Gaming, GameArt, Merkur, MicroGaming, NYX, NetEnt and NextGen. There are actually quite a few more, but these are some of the best providers around the world.
Due to this relationship, there are variations on blackjack, roulette and video poker. There are so many different slot games on offer, if you were a member of Slots Magic, it's hard to say that you'd ever be able to try them all. There are also progressive jackpots, scratch games and even card games like punto banco.
This is where things get tricky… With so many games on offer, how do you pick your favourites? If you love blackjack, you can try VIP blackjack, blackjack turbo, blackjack pro or blackjack live. If you're into the spinning wheel of roulette, do you want to try American or European? Fancy two balls spinning round? Two wheel? How about a mini wheel? It's all on offer.
Our favourite slots:
We wouldn't be a casino site if we didn't mention Mega Moolah. It's the international world sensation that makes millionaires more often than any other progressive slot. It's here and available for players to enjoy.
What's a little annoying about the search functionality and the menu system is that you can't filter by progressive slots, not that it's a huge issue because Mega Moolah is right there on the front page but you can always give games like Ozwin's Jackpots a try too.
As is always the case with different types of deposit methods and options, a lot of it will depend on availability in the country. As South Africa only has a few of the payment methods on offer, you'd imagine that everything you have ever heard of is available to you. Well, almost. Slots Magic doesn't offer deposit by SID as of yet.
Withdrawals to South African banks like Absa, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank can take anywhere between 3 and 7 working days for the money to fully clear. If you're like us and want your winnings as fast as possible, we prefer to get our money in through ewallets.
Slots Magic offers a number of free tournaments, there are actually quite a few of them each day, so you'll never get bored while waiting for the next bonus or promotion. A lot of these are free rolls and should you choose, you can re-buy in at a later time in the tournament.
You can also get free spins for a year with a minimum once off deposit, including your initial welcome bonus match offer and your 50 free spins. There's also a VIP lounge and daily pick that are on offer, so it's definitely worth keeping your eyes on the promotions page.
While not focused specifically on South African players, as a gambler in SA, you can still enjoy your experience at Slots Magic. You'll be met with so many games, you'll probably not be able to experience all of them, but at least if you have something you enjoy that's a little niche, you'll likely be able to find it here.
Mega Moolah is on offer and is ready to be played at Slots Magic, that's a great positive for the casino. You'll get some bonuses and promotions here and there but they are mostly lackluster when compared to other casinos. The daily tournaments do help to bolster that thought. Most of all, as a SA player, you'll be able to deposit and withdraw in South African Rand, and that's a big selling factor for most players.
